The Living Room, located in c/o The Maidstone Hotel is one of my favorite restaurants in the Hamptons. Not only is the food amazing – Modern American with a Swedish twist following the tenants of Slow Food cooking – but the design is incredible (these pictures do not do it justice!). Swedish hotelier Jenny Ljungberg overhauled the 150+ year old Greek Revival in 2008, infusing the historic Inn with a whimsical, sophisticated and distinctly Scandinavian-modern sensibility.
Colorful Josef Frank pillows rest on Swedish antiques and contemporary photography hangs alongside graphic wallpaper.
Now don’t get me wrong, I will always choose a restaurant based on food first (one of my favorite NJ restaurants is a Mexican dive), but when the cuisine is superb and the decor is spot-on, it really makes for a wonderful experience!
